The Reflection Black and Gold Version

The Reflection Black and Gold Version


Naomi’s Inner Rebel and studies of Female Conformity are referenced in this thought-provoking and iconic piece, originally spray painted and still featuring on Whitecross Street, EC1. This piece is a good example of Naomi’s early work as a Street Artist containing largely autobiographical elements.  


Naomi constructed an alter ego; ShyGuy (her Street Artist’s tag name) which allowed her the creative space to paint freely without fear or judgement from the outside world.  ‘The Reflection’ was inspired by a visit to an Italian chapel where Naomi was captivated by Carlo Sismonda’s painting of Christ. Years later, Naomi became interested in the works of Søren Aabye Kirkegaard (written in 19th C) and his theory of ‘The Age of Reflection’ which culturally resonates with the white noise of news, entertainment and social media of today.  


The Painting features a stencilled image of Jesus as a reflection in a mirror with his ‘Social Media Disciples’, and is synonymous with some of Naomi’s other works, which were made in rebellion to the pressure she was feeling to behave a certain way. A real Collector’s piece, the study stands as the Artist’s observation of increased ‘Social Media Connectedness’ and the impact this has on our ability to ‘connect’ with ourselves and each other. 


This piece is available as an original on wood both as a replica colour of the street version, and also as a black and gold version. The black and gold version is also available as a print.
